The Old Forge (Friday 26th April 2019)

After the long day out on Thursday, it was a day at the coalface of processing pictures on Friday (I'm still working on the album), but I did pop into the woodland garden for a look around, and it had changed a surprising amount in a couple of days. This young Japanese acer ('Garnet Red') is one of three different varieties growing in pots in the patio area. The colour rendition isn't accurate, but although the image has been adjusted a little in terms of brightness and shadow, the colour is as it came out of the camera.
Thanks to bikerbear for hosting FlowerFriday.

Lozarhythm Of The Day:
The Byrds - All I Really Want To Do (Single Version)(recorded 14 April 1965, Columbia Recording Studios, Hollywood CA)
Having suffered the indignity of not being allowed to play on the two sides of their own single in January, when sessions for the album began in March 1965 the whole group performed intact. The band by then had been honing their skills at a five-sets a night residency at Ciro's on Sunset Strip, but I suspect it could be because the record label considered an album to be sold on the back of a hit single with the rest of the album regarded as filler.
Bob Dylan was hot property at the time and four of his songs turned up on the album Mr Tambourine Man. The second single was his All I Really Want To Do, which they had recorded for the album on 8th March but went into the studios again the following month to create a tighter, faster rendition for the single, to compete with a version of the song by Chér released as a single at around the same time. She got the idea from hearing the Byrds perform the song at Ciro's. Whilst hers was the bigger US hit, the Byrds were the chart winners in the UK. Of the competition Roger McGuinn said, 'What really got me most was Dylan coming up to me and saying, "They beat you man," and he lost faith in me. He was shattered. His material had been bastardized. There we were, the defenders and protectors of his music, and we'd let Sonny and Cher get away with it.'
As with other songs on Another Side Of Bob Dylan, All I Really Want To Do was inspired by Dylan's breakup with Suze Rotolo
Singles at that time were always mixed to mono and I don't think a stereo mix of this single was ever made (the album version was released in mono and stereo formats).
